Police said the suspect was the victim's boyfriend. He was arrested on August 3 by Carrollton police after they used a bean bag shot to subdue him. Police said the victim is alright, but emotionally distraught from what happened. Police activity during the domestic situation forced the station to close around 4 p.m. causing passenger delays along DART's green line.

Meantime, a bus shuttle was setup to bridge between Trinity Mills Station and North Carrollton/Frankford Station.

Police said no one was physically hurt during the incident.
